I will not pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic
for which it stands. This must be the words of thousands of Puerto Ricans living in the island
today wishing that their small island would once and for all become free from the colonization of
the United States. Puerto Rico has been living under U.S. domination for the past 92 years and
it’s considered the last nation in Latin America that is still living in colonization. Puerto Ricans
want to be free and should be allowed to be free; to have the opportunity to vote for the president
who sends its young people to war, to have their own currency, to fly one flag in all their schools
and finally to feel pride in being an independent nation and not labeled with terms like “territory”
and “commonwealth”. Bigger and more powerful nations that inhabit smaller nations for various
benefits should never deny a nation’s culture and roots, instead in these modern times people
should be allowed to govern themselves and be independent nations. In the midst of the struggle
over status (U.S commonwealth or Independency) only one clear realization can come of this,
Puerto Rico ought to be independent and refuse commonwealth to the United States of America
